The Helmholtz Centre Potsdam – GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences is the national centre for geosphere research. As a member of the Helmholtz Association, we are part of the largest German scientific organization. With around 1,300 employees (including our guests) we develop a sound understanding of the systems and processes of the solid Earth as well as strategies and options for action to face global change and its regional impacts, to understand natural hazards and reduce associated risks, and to assess the influence of humans on the Earth's system.
As a partner in Geo.X, the GFZ has access to an excellent network of other geoscience institutions in Potsdam and Berlin. This largest regional concentration of geoscientific competence in Europe offers first-class cooperation and development opportunities.
For section 3.1 "Inorganic and Isotope Geochemistry" (department 3 "Geochemistry") we are looking for a:
on the topic "Crossing the magmatic-hydrothermal interface within ore-forming systems with numerical models".
The project is part of the DFG Priority Program DOME
(Dynamics of Ore Enrichment), which combines "empirical field-related studies that define the geological/mineralogical framework of natural ore systems with experimental work and numerical models that provide a quantitative understanding of the processes involved". The PhD student will be part of the ore deposit group at GFZ Potsdam and will be supervised by PD Dr. Philipp Weis.
